The upcoming 2019 Nissan GT-R50 is a performance car that offers astonishing on-road abilities and the unbelievably nice-looking exterior. It is a prototype by a collaborative work between the Italian design house and Nissan. In order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GT-R model and also the birth of the Italdesign, the GT-R50 seems like an appropriate gift.
While the exterior of the GT-R model was never among the top designs in its segment, the all-new GT-R50 looks superb. A real engineering work of art when it comes to every segment of this luxurious mid-size coupe.
2019 Nissan GT-R50 exterior design
The exterior of an all-new 2019 Nissan GT-R50 is based on the GT-R Nismo model, however, the design is additionally improved and modernized. A dual-color scheme looks perfect, especially the mix of the Energetic Sigma Gold and Liquid Kinetic Gray. The front fascia is restyled and it looks clean. A single air intake is wider than before while the side intakes are rising vertically.
That styling cue is a perfect match with the LED headlights. The hood will get some gold elements as the front fascia, and some new muscle lines are looking amazing on the hood. From the side, the GT-R50 looks really mean and aggressive and the overall body is 2.1 inches lower than before.
The 21-inch wheels are very modern thanks to the brake calipers finished in red color. The rear brings us no surprise, as everything will stay intact. That includes the same spoiler and rounded taillights.
